Southwest wind to 30 and gusts 45 during the first part of the day. Winds change direction and begin coming in from the northwest through midday in central Wyoming. Intermittent snow showers begin as the skies become overcast then snow becomes more prevalent in the afternoon in Casper.

Looking ahead...colder air will stick around through the the New Year. It will be a cold start to 2019 with lows in the lower teens and single digits and highs in the upper teens and twenties. Snow storm makes it's exit as we start our Wyoming New Year.
